  1. Hello everyone. I have been lurking around this newsgroup for awhile now. I finally have the courage to post and ask some questions. I am a 22 year old male. 5'6 138lbs. I have basically been this weight since I was about 17 years old. About 3 years ago I started feeling stomach discomfort.What I mean by that, is that everyone morning if I awake early I get the runs. Or basically the pain of diahriaa. I have come to accept this happening every morning. Not liquidly but soft. (I apologize for the terms but you all are probably used to it:) At night time when I lay down and through out the day my stomach just feels like there's always a knot in it. During the day it growls even when I'm not hungry. It makes weird noises the worst at night when I lay down. Its come to the point where I need some background noise on in the background cause its embarrassing. It just seems like its basically an overactive stomach. But its effecting my life. I try to stay away from quiet rooms with allot of people. The worst is the fact that in the morning my stomach is the most discomforting. It feels like a knot and I'm not hungry for about an hour or 2 after I wake up. So if I have to head to a meeting or class my stomach is the worst then. I hope I have explained this well. I appreciate all the feedback and know someone out there can recommend what to do. I know I should head to the doctors. But what type of doctor and I feel more comfortable going to one after getting feedback from everyone. Or if anyone has had this in the past and know of little remedies. Thanks you all very much. And God Bless. Jim:)
